Master of Engineering

Re-engineering engineering

To stay on top in a dynamic environment, professionals and recent graduates need access to study that allows them to upgrade their skills. To stay adaptive. And advance in the workplace of tomorrow. Western’s streamlined Master of Engineering can be completed in two years to get you fully qualified and into the workplace quicker.

This degree is taught at our innovative Parramatta City Campus, and enables you to pursue a specialisation in civil, environmental, mechanical, electrical, telecommunications or mechatronic engineering. And emerge with provisional accreditation at the Professional Engineer level by Engineers Australia.

You’ll also access the Centre for Infrastructure Engineering. The Centre is the first of its kind in Australia and enables the School of Computing, Engineering and Mathematics to conduct unique cross-disciplinary research across our Engineering, Construction and Industrial Design programs.

World-class facilities

Study at Western’s new, state-of-the-art Parramatta City campus.

Professional accreditation

Graduates of this program are eligible to apply for full membership of Engineers Australia. They are eligible to apply for Chartered Professional Engineering registration upon successful completion of required engineering practice period specified by Engineers Australia.

Course structure

Our course structure is outlined in our handbook. Here you can view all of the units (subjects) you will be studying.

Civil engineering covers the fields of structural design, geotechnical engineering and water engineering, together with infrastructure design and environmental engineering. Graduates will work in the fields of design, construction and management of engineering structures. Projects may cover residential and commercial buildings, highways and airports, water supply and sewerage schemes, etc. You may be an engineer in private industry, government departments, or in city, municipal or shire councils.

This program includes core subjects from all branches of electrical engineering. Graduates will work in the fields of electronic components, computers, electro-magnetics, power generation and distribution systems, power and control in public utilities, telecommunications, manufacturing, and electrical systems.

In addition to providing training in conventional mechanical engineering subjects, the course structure introduces students to units of study that address sustainability including sustainable design and sustainable energy engineering. Graduates will be well equipped with broad-based skills that meet the demand of Australian industries and are conscious of the need to promote sustainable design and practices. Examples include mechanical and machinery design; manufacturing; energy production; and marketing and management activities. Skills gained are required in industries such as manufacturing, materials handling, automobile, aerospace, mining, building services and infrastructure development.

Mechatronics (and robotics) provides the skills necessary for the design of smart machines of all types: cruise control in automobiles, pilotless spacecraft, automated factories and medical telerobotics. The course, accompanied by an extensive and integrated hands-on laboratory program, is essentially concerned with the design of intelligent mechanical systems and automation, and includes the study of robotics, computer control, automated manufacturing, microprocessor applications and machine design. Graduates in the program acquire the combined skills of mechanical and computer/electrical engineering that are needed in leading-edge industries such as aerospace systems, the car industry, automation and robotic applications, biomedical engineering, laser systems, and building materials manufacture.

Recent advances in computer and telecommunications networked systems have increased the importance of network technologies in the discipline of computer science. This major gives you a thorough technical understanding of modern networked computer systems, how they work and the principles that govern them.

In the Environmental specialisation you will study Sustainable systems, Advanced Waste Management, Advanced Water and Wastewater Treatment, Sustainability and Risk Engineering, Planning and Environmental Regulation, Safety and Risk Management, Building in Bushfire Prone Areas

The tuition fees quoted above are the fees for the normal full-time study load of the course (80 credit points) per annum. International students will be subject to a variable fee regime; i.e. enrolled students will be required to pay fees during their course based on the approved fee for each calendar year. Fee changes (if any) will occur at 1 January each calendar year. Students who extend their course past the normal finish date of the course will be required to pay additional fees based on the prevailing fee level. Western Sydney University is a multi-campus institution. The University reserves the right to alter the location of its courses between campuses and other locations as necessary. Students should be aware of the possibility of change of location for the whole or part of courses for which they enrol and should plan for the need to travel between Western Sydney campuses.
